Pairs of #Adafruit Half-size Perma-Proto Boards Transformed Into a Pin Header Soldering Platform
J. Kha shared a project at Hackaday.io for bolting together pairs of Adafruit Half-size Perma-Proto Boards to create a Pin Header Soldering Platform:
Wondering what to do with all those free half-sized perma-protos from Adafruit? Try this simple project to assist you in your soldering. Using two half-sized perma-protos, screwed together with a brass spacer in between, create a soldering platform that allows you to easily solder 0.1 inch pin headers perpendicular to your break out boards every time.
Adafruit Perma-Proto Half-sized Breadboard PCB – Single: Customers have asked us to carry basic perf-board, but we never liked the look of most basic perf: its always crummy quality, with pads that flake off and no labeling. Then we thought about how people actually prototype – usually starting with a solderless breadboard and then transferring the parts to a more permanent PCB. That’s when we realized what people would really like is a proto board that makes it easy! (read more)
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
